Hooray Henley's?

My most favorite place, I grew up around these places, makes me a bit homesick lol. Lovely capturesmile
John Prior: Thanks Linda, love all the walks along the river in this area.
I've always wanted to see a regatta race on the Thames in person, John. This is the next best thing. Do you know how many teams participated?

A fine action. I like the spray of water frozen mid-air. Excellent color and detail. What a fine setting for the competition.

I've never seen a regatta race in person, but would like to one day. What a lovely place.
loveley shot here John, caught all the action
Somewhere I've never been for any reason, it looks very nice and peaceful so I guess this wasn't regatta time.
John Prior: Brian, Yes a few days before, a bit of practise. It is very busy along the banks especially closer to Henley, about a mile from the island. Also lots of people partying on boats on the other side of the white posts. These are driven in each year to mark the course.
